I think someone on this website, last year, said the cotton bowl doesn’t have lights and that’s the reason why they play it so early. Plus sticking with tradition.

It does not, I would be afraid to play in the dark too. This may be the same person that says The Ohio State & Michigan should play in prime time at 8:00 at night in a 27 degree wind chill so the game can end at 12am in a (possible) snow blizzard while there is black ice on the roads & no one can get home.

Saying the UM-OSU game shouldn’t be at night is like saying southern teams shouldn’t schedule OOC road games in November against Northern teams – both things are points of criticism in college football (as well as the general avoidance of night games by the B1G late in the season although they have been getting better year after year)
